Idea Gallery & Sharing the tips

Howdy and Happy Monday!

Ponder these questions:
What do I want the end result to be?
Why am I doing this? Who is this for?
What do I want to get out of it?

With this type of thought process, many of you will come to a place of
greater clarity about your scrapbook organization.
It might take a little time to realize whatever it is that you need to realize.
But many of you truly will have an a-ha moment. Super!

However …
Many of you will not necessarily have the light bulb moment,
but rather you will throw those questions and this blog post
to the wind and say Who cares about a system!? I just want to play!

And you know what? That’s okay too.

“Figuring out” a scrapbook system isn’t for everyone.
Sometimes it’s best to just do something. 
Start somewhere and have fun and that’s it!
But for many (myself included), there is great value in thinking
about the big picture … even if it evolves and changes a bit over time

(which is a thousand percent perfectly okay!).

So, let's check my layout...
I'm using Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

I like to print out my own wording.

Chipboard diecut & I powdered emboss on it.

Make use on the chipboard diecut, enhance with paint & glossy accent.
One big photo is more than enough

In addition to your own personal pondering,I’m sharing some additional thoughts on this topic – from me, and from our Creative Team.As with everything else in scrapbooking, there is no right or wrong, no best or worst.Do what feels right for your life, your situation, your family, your sanity.The purpose in sharing these ideas is the hope that something will stand out to youas something you want to consider for your own system …or perhaps a completely different idea not even mentioned here will pop into your mind.
